"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds…" 2Co 10:4
Ephesians chapter six speaks of the whole Armour of God as Truth, Righteousness, the Gospel of Peace, Faith, Salvation, and the Word of God in addition to Prayer. Emphasis is on being strengthen by God in His power and might in order to stand against and defeat the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly realm when attacked (or in the evil day).
As we celebrate Veterans Day, being thanking for the men and women who serve and have served in the military, let us keep in mind the many Saints of God who have and continue to wage the good warfare and fight the good fight of Faith for the souls of humanity. Eternity is in the heart of men but to search it out remains a mystery (Eccl. 3:11). God wants everyone saved and to come into the knowledge of the truth (I Tim. 2:4) before it’s too late.
“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made. For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid Me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart. I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him (Isa. 57:15-19).”
Our fight is a good and necessary fight in the Lord. When you think of unsaved loved ones remember the words of Nehemiah, “And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses (Neh. 4:14)”. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but we do wrestle… Step Into It!
"Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God." Rom 6:13
